What’s in your Nordic ski car??

If you’re like many, many Jackson Hole/ Teton Valley locals, your car or truck is your moving ski room! Classic skis, skate skis, BC Nordic skis, and likely some Alpine Touring (AT) skis, maybe alpine resort skis ( powder, all mountain, groomer/ carve skis), plus poles, boots for each type of ski, plus accessories x members of yr family or ski buddies!

Send us your pictures of your mobile ski stash or share on IG @jhnordic #jhnordic!!


Teton Tea

Isn’t it a pleasure to visit those special places every year and to treasure annual traditions – maybe skiing up Shadow Mountain, or from Signal Mountain to Bradley-Taggart, or snowshoeing up Granite Canyon – all glorious and full of friendship and fun.   

Adding to the fun, is the chance to pair it with a bit of local history – often resulting in an even greater appreciation of the sites enjoyed.  For instance, Whitegrass Ranch, established in 1913, is Jackson Hole’s third oldest dude ranch, with cabins restored by the National Park Service.  Likewise, the restored Lucas Fabian Cabins provide a perfect resting spot north of Taggart Lake.  And the Hunter-Hereford Ranch provides awe-inspiring photos with the Tetons in their background.  And then there is opportunity to visit the Jackson Hole History Museum and the Grand Teton National Park Visitor Center for even more excellent storytelling. 

And speaking of history, according to Inger Koedt’s recipe book entitled Recipes for the Mountains, Jackson Hole’s Hootenanny was started in the 1950s as a gathering of climbers and folk singers called the “Teton Tea Party” at which Teton Tea was soon a tradition: “½ portion strong tea, ¼ portion white wine, ¼ portion red wine, with lemon and sugar to taste.  Heat it all, best over an open fire so it gets that smoky taste.” 

Here’s nodding to your favorite traditions!

Trail Creek

Grooming Daily
Last Update: 1/18

Plumes of Steam!
The temps actually dropped into the just below zero range this morning, making for some lovely plumes of steam as the Husky was once again busy doing its grooming thing at Trail Creek.  Calm and sunny conditions are once again the rule, making it easy to maintain some nice firm ski trails.

The Husky covered nearly every trail in our 15+K network today, mostly making a single pass.  The narrower sections predominantly did receive a fresh classic track with the wider trails only needing a skate buff to be in really nice shape.  Some of the more heavily used classic tracks in the fields were also reset as needed.

The elk have continued to make their presence known by the abundance of hoof tracks every morning, and today a small bull moose was seeming to have a good time, perusing our trails as well.  There have also been pine marten tracks many mornings although no sightings have been reported.

Finally thanks to Coach Kathy for submitting another great Lollipopper shot, this time with snoccer being played.

Groomer’s choice for today is Shades of Gray
